Czechia Welcomes International Tourists Despite State of Emergency

The government of the Czech Republic has confirmed that the authorities in the Czech Republic are keeping their doors open to international tourists.

The announcement comes despite the government’s decision to declare a state of emergency due to the large number of refugees the Czechs are taking in due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, TheSchengen.com reports.

In this regard, Katharina Hobbs, Director of Czech Tourism in the UK and Ireland, said that it was necessary to open the funds in order to support refugees from Ukraine.
